We’ve always been happy to be your local Sanford, FL Chrysler dealers, but we’re exceptionally proud to represent the Chrysler brand today. That’s because the Chrysler brand recently announced that it has partnered with Canine Companions for Independence in support of the charity’s Give a Dog a Job campaign.
Canine Companions for Independence is America’s largest non-profit for assistance dogs. The Give a Dog a Job campaign was created to raise money and awareness that will help adults, children and veterans with disabilities get the assistance dogs they need to improve the quality of their lives.
The award-winning 2017 Chrysler Pacifica will be featured throughout the campaign. With that in mind, the Chrysler brand is excited to have its first official PacifiPuppy, Foley. Foley is a cross between a Golden Retriever and Labrador that people can watch go through training to become a full-service assistance dog online. You can engage with the adorable, hard-working dog by using the hashtags “#RaisingFoley” and “#FoleyFriday” on social media.
“Through our partnership with Canine Companions for Independence, the Chrysler brand is able to help bring awareness to its Give a Dog a Job program through our new online social initiative,” said Tim Kuniskis, Head of Passenger Cars, Dodge, SRT, Chrysler and FIAT, FCA North America. “As we follow Foley through his journey, fans will get a first-hand look at watching him grow and learn, from puppy training to becoming a fully trained assistance dog, and also gain an understanding of the huge amount of time and resources it takes to train these amazing dogs.”
In addition to partnering with Canine Companions for Independence, the Chrysler brand is working with BraunAbility to design a Chrysler Pacifica that’s wheelchair-accessible. This partnership is a natural pairing as both organizations are leaders when it comes to adapted vehicles that allow people with disabilities to retain their independence. When the Chrysler Pacifica the two companies are working on makes its debut, it will have the most interior space and the widest door opening and side entry ramp in the auto industry.
Everyone at our Chrysler dealership serving Orlando, FL and surrounding communities is really excited by the Chrysler brand’s recent partnerships with Canine Companions for Independence and BraunAbility. If you or someone you know has a disability and need to have a vehicle modified to be able to drive, we encourage you to contact Fields Chrysler Jeep® Dodge RAM Sanford to learn about the FCA Automobility Program today.
